About the Program
Medical schools are seeking well-rounded students who have demonstrated leadership skills, volunteer experience, knowledge of medicine, a strong academic record with a baccalaureate degree, and a strong score on the MCAT exam. Since medical schools do not require any specific major, pre-med students may choose any course of study they desire. In addition to your academic advisor in the major of your choice, Eastern Illinois University provides access to a Pre-Health Professions Advisor.
By listing pre-medicine as a "second major", you will then be assigned a second advisor, to aid you through the process to prepare for medical school.
Additional information about the medical school application process may be found at the Association of American Medical Colleges aamc.org website.
